Advanced Arabic through Discussion is a classroom-tested Advanced Arabic course. It uses an inquiry-based approach to challenge advanced learners of Arabic by engaging them in thought-provoking discussions about social, ethical, and legal issues related to advertising, censorship, dress-codes, environment, rap music, extreme sports, GMOs, and other topics.

Drawing on her long experience as an Arabic instructor, Nevenka Korica Sullivan has organized the book into twenty chapters, each accompanied by audio recordings of all reading and listening texts. While exploring each issue, learners are guided to expand their vocabulary, acquire complex structures, and discover the systematic relationships between language form, function, and meaning. The course is designed to create a lively, student-centered classroom where interaction is both the goal and the means of language study; it also can be successfully used with a tutor or for independent study.
